, and defense, six out of 10 federal dollars. what are the tough choices that you are willing to make when it comes to prioritizing cuts in benefits or defense, because it is clear that the only three areas you can make substantive differences, and for the tea party, the people who put you in office, state how you would make the tough choices. where do you cut? >> you included the overseas contingency operations. now we are now out of iraq, that does not count. my opponent said he would not support. cut the defense budget over the next 10 years. it is the sequestration that i am against. 62% of the budget is net interest on the debt. one of the things, stop with a payroll tax cut gimmicks, because we are driving social security into a deficit situation. we have to look at how we can reform and protect and preserve programs like medicare. >> a question for you, mr. murphy. any serious discussion to look at programs like this and serious cuts? where does it start? >> you cannot look at these three in a vacuum. it is a problem, and that is why i want to get the congress, because i think i can
questions are. was he directed by the president or the secretary of defense? he said, no. >> shannon: as you know, there are very few people above a four-star general, that narrows the field of who has the answers. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: hurricane sandy is expected to make landfall on tuesday morning, around the delaware coast with storm urges up to 8 feet. we are feeling it up and down the east coast. states of emergency have been declared from north carolina through new england. and this rare hybrid storm that follows sandy may wreak even more havoc. we have more live team coverage. we go to the fox extreme weather center and rick. >> reporter: it's all one storm, becoming one big storm. a storm like we have never seen. if you live anywhere from illinois to mississippi, to the east, you are going to feel the effects of this storm. very big already. you can see the cloud cover from canada to south carolina, rain has been consistent in the outer banks and we are seeing rain in parts of new jersey and much of the state of pennsylvania. this is th
romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others
to increase defense spending or put it in our economic debt crisis. it's a pretty good distinction. but to what end? the debate was supposed to give you a framework on what the president would do with foreign policy and we didn't get a lot of that. gwen: molly, you've been going out on the actual campaign trail with people who are door-knockers and so on every day. i wonder whether these issues we talk about in our little hothouse in washington come up when people are trying to get voters to though -- show up to vote? >> they do. it's easy to say voters don't care about x, y, or z but voters are smarter than we think and they pay attention and are processing all this in a very careful way. one woman in florida said the reason she's still undecided is she has all the debates on d.v.r. and wants to do her homework. gwen: what? what? that sounds awful to me! >> i know. but there was tremendous earnestness. a lot of the undecided voters are people who legitimately see validity in both candidates' views and are really looking fob for that trust factor the gwen: how much? about undecided
get word tonight that michigan is about to get a defensive and paste from the president. a state he thought he had lock down. we will find that who is expanding the map and give his blessing one week from tonight. lou: thank you. our chief white house correspondent. the campaigns may be at a standstill, but the candidates now have i great deal of work to do. well, much more on the political campaign, hurricane sandy's impact on the selection. it will be talking with the "a-team" and the role of the clintons in this campaign. bill clinton showing up almost everywhere. the administration's less than transparent you of benghazi. best-selling author ann klein. extensive damage through the eastern seaboard, the cost to rebuild a staggering as well. liz macdonald with our report. record-breaking sandy stranding the residence of the country's largest city, forcing the closure of subways, buses, bridges, tunnels. how long before normal becomes normal. former new york governor george pataki joins us next. ♪ with my friends, we'll do almost anything. out for drinks, eats. i have very well f
is doing well, everywhere. he is is really hitting hard defense spending in southeastern, virginia. the tidewater area where you have a lot of defense contractors and a lot of military families. hitting on all of the cylinders in virginia right now. >> sean: last quick question, does romney ryan take wisconsin? >> i think they have a good shot at doing so. the numbers are looking good. president obama is spending a lot of time there which shows he is deeply worried about it. wouldn't be spending time if he were getting away with a state easily. one other thing, too, the president is going to make a stop in superior wisconsin in the northwestern part of the state. i'm convinced he thinks minnesota is at play. that is a place you go in order to affect duluth, minnesota. i think it is a very smart play on the president's part. not only a part of wisconsin that is important but also saying i need to get there because i may be seeing minnesota slip away from me as well. >> sean: i'm ready for game day. let's get it on. thanks for being with us. >> let's do it. >> sean: we now know that
of hurricane sandy. the defense of defense is setting up emergency mobile gas stations to ease shortages in the new york city metro area and this is the scene in new jersey, the state is now rationing gasoline in 12 different counties to try to ease the lines at gas stations and drivers with odd numbered plates can buy gas today. if you have even numbered plates in new jersey you have to buy gas on even numbered days so that would be tomorrow. and then days after, sandy, ripping through the northeast cleanup continues. we'll be back later. ♪ >> welcome back to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot, well, the final weekend before the presidential election and national polls show the race in a dead heat. like many analysts, republican pollster ayers says the key to victory for either candidate rests with independents and he has new numbers to share with us. great to have you back on the program. is the race -- is the race really as tight as the polls seem to suggest? >> it is incredibly tight. just incredibly tight. what's not tight now is the standing among independents who gave
who choose to drive. it is getting longer in new jersey and new york. the defense department setting up emergency mobile gas station. there is a limit 10 gallons a person. mayor bloomberg said it would be a big relief. >> i am optmistic in a couple of days, the shortage will disappear and relatively quickly. it takes time to get the fuel from where it start to where we need it >> that is it what words fopt is hear. quick, quickly david lee miller. so many people there first feeling forgotten and now up close we see what they are dealing with. >>ers are tough and those new yorkers who live in staten island are among the toughest. there is a sense was solidarity and people sticking together in great adversity and there is a special donation center that is now in operation and at this particular location, staten ilaners are helping one another. those who have are giving to the have nots and bringing food and water and clothing. >> and also on staten island. fema and the red cross and other agencies, some of which were critized by authorities for not coming sooner. staten island hardest
. virginia has -- depends on defense to a greater degree than every other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on defense and special flavor on federal spending because governmental employment is so important not just in northern virginia which borders and washington d.c. but also in hampton roads and the surrounding localities. host: water the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most large population states, they are many states in one. you ignore the virginia which is about 1/3 of the state's population and produces at least 30% of the boat if not more. that has a low nativity rate. that population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has people with the highest educational level and the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to tidewater and hampton roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is a white-collar and blue- collar and has a large african- american population. it also has a relatively low nativity rape, people
committee what do you make of secretary of defense panetta who says look in terms of the criticism that we didn't send in more troops that you don't put more troops in harm's way when you don't have intelligence on the ground as to what they are getting into. >> i am a member of the armed services committee and i appreciate what mark udall said about not politicizing this. this is about a huge international security issue you that affects all of us and there was a shocking breakdown operationally not to have the security there in the first place and then not to respond to these guys in their pleas for help for seven hours during a fire fight is unbelievable and now we are hearing that the president of the united states based on his own words issued a directive saying that he wanted to be sure those people on the ground were safe and getting what they needed. it didn't happen. this means either that the president's order was not followed. which would be a breakdown in terms of the white house procedure. or, it means the order wasn't issued. we need to find out about this. it is not about po
. what about the latest charges that you have made that the defense secretary did not pursue or follow up and respond to requests for help? leon panetta has said there was no way to ascertain safely who to send in and what the situation was on the ground because the video that they were monitoring did not give them a clear picture of what was happening. >> well, that's a different answer than what the president said when the president has repeatedly said they did everything they could possibly do to protect the people in benghazi, i beg to differ. i visited with general hamm the four-star jen until charge, i went to lib why, and when i asked very succinctly and directly did he have the resources the capability to actually go into libya and try to help save those people in benghazi, his response was, that he was not asked to do so. so, on the one hand the president's saying that they did everything they could possibly do on the other hand you hear the defense secretary say it maybe wasn't safe enough. again, that's just a convoluted answer. we're seeking answers. we think the families dese
has a memo suggest hag romney surge put pennsylvania in play and the president is on defense saying the expansion of the electoral map demonstrates that governor romney's momentum jumped containment from the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states that chicago never anticipated defending. paul ryan was in his home state of wisconsin to encourage relief efforts of campaign victory offices. the native son popularity helped him surge in 2.3 points of the president in real clear politics average of recent wisconsin polls. thursday he will visit virginia where the top ally is dealing with the clean-up. >> we are issuing a letter today to all the voting registrar office around the state. asking them to stay open for up to eight additional hours to make up for the time. that a citizen may not have had to vote absentee. over the last two days. >> i don't think the damage has been massive. not in virginia it appears. especially northern virginia. not necessarily in new hampshire. so, we're not looking at swing states, sustaining the damage. >> devastation hasn't completely disru
the federal government has a law in place called the defensive marriage act which basically means that same sex marriage cls ducted in the six states and the district of columbia that have marriage, for example, let's say that a couple gets married in massachusetts and god forbid one of those partner dies. the federal government has a law in place that does not recognize that legal marriage. so for the purposes of things like social security survivor benefits or internment in federal cemeteries or a whole number of laws having to do with tament tax treatment and things like that. that couple in the eyes of the federal government is not recognized as having been legally married. as you can appreciate in the case of death or some kind of family turmoil, that often has led to the emotional and financial devastation to that family. so for federal law purposes at least, the word marriage and the institution of marriage is incredibly important. but really it goes much deeper than that. it's really wanting to be treated as equal citizens under the law. host: our next call comes from illinois. sue,
but not least, the tone, they shifted from reactive and defensive to a positive stance, not unlike the u.s. ranger that macdonald was. proctor jumped two points yesterday, i still think it's worth buying. the company has a 56-year long track record of raising the dividend. a nice catalyst on november 15th. i bet macdonald tells a fantastic story and you want to be in the stock before the meeting happens. bottomline? take the story of bob macdonald, and we all make mistakes. you have to be willing to admit when you were wrong, and i was wrong on macdonald. he has been screwing up by his own admission. i was right to take him down. and now the company just reported a great quarter, i look like a smarty pants than a dope. >>> jim, richard. >> caller: is there a good time for the stock? kimberly clark? >> they have passed the torch to proctor. i do like kimberly's dividend. like proctor's growth profile. >>> i need to go to kyle in maryland. >> caller: booyah, jim. this is kyle, giving a shoutout to my exxon professor, carl mar x. good product innovation, good paying dividend, is this a buy?
from reactive anew products. last but not least, the tone, they shifted from reactive and defensive to a positive stance, not unlike the u.s. ranger that macdonald was. proctor jumped two points yesterday, i still think it's worth buying. the company has a 56-year long track record of raising the dividend. a nice catalyst on november 15th. i bet macdonald tells a fantastic story and you want to be in the stock before the meeting happens. bottom line? take the story of bob macdonald, and we all make mistakes. you have to be willing to admit when you were wrong, and i was wrong on macdonald. he has been screwing up by his own admission. i was right to take him down. and now the company just reported a great quarter, i look like a smarty pants rather than a dope. >>> let's go to richard. >> caller: is this a good time for the stock? kimberly clark? >> they have passed the torch to proctor. i do like kimberly's dividend. like proctor's growth profile. >>> i need to go to kyle in maryland. >> caller: booyah, jim. this is kyle, giving a shoutout to my econ professor, carl marx. good produ
's a great concern. either the president gave an order that was disobeyed by the secretary of defense to provide support in benghazi or he didn't, and i think people want answers before this election on that, so that's what's going to determine the outcome. we got a great ground game, and i expect governor romney to win a close election in virginia, candy. >> you may need some voters to get to the polls. we wish you well. got a big storm coming before we even get to the election. we'll have our fingers crossed for virginia and maryland and surrounding states. thank you for being here. former ohio governor, ted strickland, thank you as well. >>> when we return, the latest developments on hurricane sandy.  >>> the northeast is bracing for a hit from hurricane sandy. meteorologist bonnie schneider is at the cnn weather center tracking the storm. bonnie, what's the latest? >> right now, hurricane sandy is 575 miles south of new york city and the storm is on the move. as a category one, 75 miles per hour, but it is interesting to note we have some updates to tell you about. first off, the
, that the obama campaign's playing some defense there, but he can do it if he can win some combination of wisconsin, iowa or new hampshire. >> the ohio news organization poll has it a dead heat in that state, 49%-49%. and also staying in the midwest, in minnesota, mitt romney's actually sliced president obama's large lead in that state. also an independent state, 47%-44 rs 47%-44% according to "the minnesota startribune." you also add on top of that, in iowa, you have a "des moines register" endorsement which is huge. >> that was a big endorsement. >> that is a huge endorsement of that state. they haven't endorsed a republican since richard nixon in 1972. there are few endorsements that still matter. really matter. in iowa, the des moines register endorsement matters. >> not only that, look at the artwork on the front page. >> all right. thank you, barnicle. >> it's tightening up in the midwest. >> the midwest, wisconsin, minnesota. but the wild card in this thing we've already alluded to it is this storm. >> yeah. >> how does it impact early voting? power outages that might continue f
in spending cuts, with half of that coming from the defense budget. military leaders say it would be stay crippling. if the justices said it would be devastating to the economy -- state legislators said it would be devastating to the economy. can you explain your vote on that bill? >> absolutely. i voted to avoid default, just like john mccain. he made that exact same vote. we voted to make sure we did not go into a double-dip recession and lead the world into a global recession. i did not support sequestration. sequestration is based on the tea party premise that you do not raise revenues whatsoever. i believe we need to take a balanced approach. we are going to need to increase revenues, and we will need to cut agency budgets and stomach some cuts that many democrats are not going to be happy about. that is the only way we get to where we need to be on this. i think it is incumbent upon myself and everyone else in congress to get back to work after this election and come up with a solution that has both of those pieces. cuts and revenues, rather than embraces the tea party sequestration
questions were -- in fact, alex can you pull the sound bite of chris christie getting a little bit defensive, i guess, about this all? because it seemed to me that those are two people doing what they are supposed to do. one on the left, one on the right, doesn't really matter, they're both doing what they're supposed to do, but yet at a time when new jersey is suffering its biggest crisis in probably decades and most of our lifetimes, he's getting a question that has him saying this? take a listen. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think a leadership should be given to this type of situation. this was as comfortable and relaxing an interaction as i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do, which is to get things done. there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. well, you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. s
sure we fully fund the military to make sure we are going to always have the greatest military defense in the world. >> moderator: okay, thank you. mr. morning? morning: well, i'm clearly the peace through strength campaign. i believe that if you look up something like the pet row dollar and tie the fact that our monetary scheme is tied to oil, you'll see a good part of our foreign policy not just in the middle east, but elsewhere is tie today all the of the worst decisions we've made. and i'm opposed to just about anything arrive seen coming out of washington, d.c. for the last 70 years or so. we've not had a year's peace, we've not had a declared war since world war ii. all of that's immoral, and it's not working. i would say that what we ought to be doing is peace, commerce, healthy skepticism with all nations and entangling alliances with none. >> moderator: thank you. mr. donnelly? one minute. donnelly: well, first and foremost, osama bin laden is dead. in regards to iran, they cannot get a nuclear weapon. it is, it is a nonnegotiable point. what you've seen so far with the sancti
, and who knew about the decision and lied about it, are murderers of my son. >> chris: defense secretary panetta and charlie woods, father of the former navy s.e.a.l. killed in the benghazi attack. disagreeing over the decision not to provide military backup, while the assault was going on. and we're back now with the panel. let's talk about the issues that may swing voters, in the final week of the campaign and let's start with libya, there were several developments this past week, we learned, as you heard debated there, the fact that the cia operators on the ground in benghazi, asked for a military backup and were turned down several times while the attack was going on and we also found out that cia people on the ground reported that during the attack, that a jihadist group, ansar al-sharia was claiming responsibility for the attack. brit what, do you make of this especially in the context of the campaign. >> what i make of it is, it looks terrible. even though i don't fully endorse the remarks of the grieving father, there, i understand his grief. i lost a son myself, but not in milit
, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust surprise, and pretty sure it's not, i'm pretty sure most voters are not paying attention to it and are not taking a close look at it. we will see how it all plays out. -- i am pretty sure it is not the october surprise. host: there's the "washington times" -- guest: this is the nebraska senate seat and senator ben nelson is retiring.
? for example, it seems to me that they are generally satisfied with defense cooperation and have accepted and cooperated on sanctions, but they have considerable concerns about war and considerable concerns about the consequences of iraq and what our policy is in syria, and certainly palestine. so would anyone like to comment about that? >> can everybody hear me? so, i think part of iran's favor is isolating itself from the neighborhood in terms that particularly the gcc states. under ahmadinejad since 2005, the islamic republic has done a lot to scare everybody in the region, through its nuclear pursued, but a range of other action. when you look at iranian policy before ahmadinejad, there was a tendency to seek some sort of cordial working relationship with the gcc states, including saudi arabia, especially saudi arabia. for example, rafsanjani really trying to be some of the tensions between iran and saudi arabia, followed much more policy toward saudi arabia and the gcc states. of course, the historic and ideological tension between the two sides never went away, but ahmadinejad has m
like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota is a decision made out of weakness not strength. well
're equal part defense of president obama and anger at the republican party. it's driving what looks to be potentially record early african-american vote which only helps the president. >> and lastly the president leading with overwhelming support when voters were asked does the candidate care about people like you. does care at 62%. mitt romney at 44%. is there an empathy gap that's still plaguing the governor and even more so now that we're going to see the president out with people, the regular folks in new jersey, the people that are dealing with storm cleanup, the first responders and the fema staff? >> yeah, i think this has always been the president's greatest strength and it's one we knew from the very quinnibeginning. it does it not only in person but on tv. what happened in that first debate, he didn't connect for 90 minutes and it put us back in the game. mitt romney closed that gap. i think over the next couple weeks as both of these men make their closing statements to the american people, most important to about seven swing states, mitt romney will have to find that way
defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. jaw drop? campbell's has 24 new soups that will mak
. that's why the money is coming in. that's why obama is really playing hard defense right now. >> larry, two things to watch in pennsylvania. in the west, you have the coal country. they're very irritated about the obama administration's regulations. and in the east, you have the philadelphia suburb philadelphia suburbs. romney is strong with republican voters. if suburban voters flip, romney has a real shot in the keystone state. >> if republicans are always worried about wasteful spending, this is a perfect example of wasteful spending. they don't spend any money in minnesota at all. >> one at a time. >> it's not that long ago. >> 1972 is the last time minnesota voted for a republican. >> i hate to say it, but it was richard nixon. now i've said it. robert costa, i want you to challenge my friend keith boykins. you're saying there's a horse race in michigan, and wisconsin. the numbers in wisconsin look even up. and in iowa, where the liberal des moines register just endorsed romney. so there could be some real midwestern upsets, huh? >> the point in wisconsin is true. keith boykins is
